HYCU Data Protection Software – Product Review

HYCU provides data protection software that can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud. It can be selfhosted, or it can be procured via public cloud providers’ marketplaces or third-party partners. The product was originally created by, and later spun off from, Comtrade Software.

HYCU was initially released as a data protection software for Nutanix environments. Its support and deployment options have since been expanded; a version is available for Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), VMware, NetApp ONTAP, and Dell EMC PowerScale OneFS environments, it can be deployed in AWS, Google, and Microsoft Azure public clouds, and it can protect enterprise applications including Microsoft 365 and SAP HANA.

HYCU maintains deep partnerships with the source infrastructure providers, including Nutanix, AWS, Google, and Microsoft, in order to fully leverage the source environment’s capabilities and features, such as cloning and snapshotting. In the public cloud, this also translates into optimization of price points and regions. This approach also facilitates application-centric data protection, including automated application discovery, and application-aware backup and recovery (e.g., application-aware storage-level snapshots).
